6Jascó, P.: CD-ROM and Web database software : the best of the Web databases surpass their CD-ROM couterparts.
In: Information today. 15(1998) no.4, S.32,37.
Abstract: Confirms the accuracy of a prediction 4 years ago that the CD-ROM graphic interfaces then available would be rivalled in online. Many Web based services now outperform CD-ROM models and magazine pages often look better on the Web than on CD-ROM. Desirable, but not widely available, is the facility to download data from CD-ROM databases. The best CD-ROM authority and retrieval software packages with impressible capabilities remain expensive but there are reasonably priced alternatives for Web publishing and database searching, many of which are derived from CD-ROM originals. A new software development which allows replication of Web sites on CD-ROM will feature in articles in future issues of 'Information today'

7Jascó, P.: Will white page CD-ROM directories turn yellow, or, er, green of envy?.
In: Link-up. 15(1998) no.1, S.3,17.
Abstract: 1997 saw fierce competition among the publishers of print, CD-ROM and online telephone directories in the USA. Considers whether it is worth buying any white pages CD-ROM now that such information is freely available over the Internet. compares 3 versions of the white pages information based on American Business Information (ABI) data: American Directory Assistance (Http://www.lookupusa.com); InfoSpace (http://www.infospace.com); and the 7-disc CD-ROM database PhoneSearch 3.0. Concludes that for casual use such as looking up names, the Web databases are much more efficient. The CD-ROM version may be better for those who regularly want to compile mailing lists and phone lists to target a district

9Jascó, P.: CD-ROM databases with full-page images.
In: Computers in libraries. 18(1998) no.2, S.33-35.
Abstract: Full text databases often cannot substitute for the original print document because they include only the plain text, but not the figures, charts, tables, and screen shots that are useful and sometimes essential for understanding the article. Discusses 3 recently released page-image databases on CD-ROM. UMI's ProQuest Medical Library includes searchable bibliographic records and abstracts for about 120 medical and nursing journals as well as the facsimile of the articles with users able to view the articles in full-page format, just as they first appeared in print: ADONIS Electronic Journal Subscription Services CD offers 400 biomedical journals in CD-ROM page-image format; and Optipat's OptiDisk Custom CD-ROMs provide a customizable service for US patents where customers can order US patents in text only, or image only, or in text and image format with or without a searchable index by submitting the patent numbers required

10Jascó, P.: Multimedia strategies in online encyclopedias part 1 : a look at Grolier and Compton's in their latest online incarnations.
In: Information today. 15(1998) no.4, S.40,42.
Abstract: Now that multimedia online encyclopedias are being produced simultaneously in 2 versions, one under licence by 3rd parties and one directly by the content producers, it is possible to compare the results. Discusses the differences and similarities of the online versions of Grolier and Comptons and with the CD-ROM versions, in terms of content, searching and quality of multimedia. In view of America Online price increases, Grolier's and Compton's launch of their own services seems a good idea

11Jascó, P.: Multimedia strategies in online encyclopedias.
In: Information today. 15(1998) no.5, S.40.
Abstract: Reviews Encyclopedia Britannica Online ($80) from Britannica, and Encarta Concise Encyclopedia (free) from Microsoft. Britannica has more than 12.000 illustrations of high quality, excellent maps, and 60 multimedia elements including sound, video, and animation. It could be improved by enabling illustrations to be used as filtering criteria for searches, and the QuickTime multimedia format is too slow for the content. Encarta has 16.000 articles, 1.678 photographs, 408 dynamic maps, and a wealth of other features. There are no audio clips, collages, virtual tours, or panoramic views, and check boxes would be more convenient than radio buttons in the interface. Includes 2 screen displays

17Jascó, P.: Publishing textual databases on the Web.
In: Information today. 15(1998) no.9, S.47-48.
Abstract: The 1st of 3 articles discussing the reasons why Web database publishing is a growing trend and the options available for moving databases from desktops to the Web. Reasons concern accessibility, paper saving, distribution costs and the desire to reduce reliance on traditional database publishers. Advises on various types of database management programs which provide for HTML output, and their applications to, e.g. library acquisitions and bibliographies. Distinguishes between server-side and user-side extensions and reviews a number of relevant products
19Jascó, P.: Publishing textual databases on the Web : Part 2 examines HTML options for moving from the desktop to the Web.
In: Information today. 15(1998) no.10, S.38.
Abstract: Recommends for libraries the use of some of the features of HTML 3.2 as the least expensive and sometimes the only feasible approach to making an existing database available on the Web, referring to the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography as an excellent illustration of what can be achieved. Describes how to apply HTML using the example of a Web prototype of an abstracting and indexing database of 12 volumes of 'Processes in Hawaii', created as part of a course in library and information science at the University of Hawaii. Explains the choosing of primary access points, linking, anchoring references to make the browser jump and show the exact section of the document where a name or term appears, and framing to retain displays simultaneously on the screen
20Jascó, P.: Publishing textual databases on the Web : part 3 of this series examines Java applets and CGI/DLL programs.
In: Information today. 15(1998) no.11, S.33,36.
Abstract: A detailed description of how to use Java applets and Common Gateway Interface (CGI)/Dynamic Link Library (DLL) programs for Web publication of textual databases. The advantages of Java applets include low cost, flexible and visually appealing search interfaces, and the ability to be embedded in HTML pages, eliminating the need for Internet service provider permissions for their use. Highlights the FindIt family of Java applets from DoubleOLogic as one of the best product lines in the category. CGI programs may be written in Perl, Java, or some other language, and like DLL programs, must be installed on the server side. Notes that small-scale CGI and DLL applications cost from $150 to $8,000. Highlights Insight from Enigma Inc. as an excellent program at the high end of the cost range
